Pretty straight forward and gets the job done

I love this app, I’ve been with them since I was in college. I stayed loyal after the developer sent me an email personally and helped me with my issues then. I haven’t changed since, and every time I need a citation I always comeback to here, and now it’s on an app! Thanks again!

I love this app cuz like I said in the title it’s p straight forward and gets the job done for me, and when I’m done citing, I just copy paste everything into my word document! I can’t really complain about this, and it’s free! 😄

I do wish in the future there were an extension for word so I could access all of my stuff from my account right inside of word! *fingers crossed*

Same problems

A lot of the information that you get from the ISBN number is incomplete. For example, if the title has a colon (:) I’ve had to enter the rest of the title manually every time. If there is more than one author, I have to enter the other authors manually each time. Often, when there is an editor for a book, I have to take them out of the author field and put them into the editor field. Finally, there of been a number of occasions where does failed to include the publisher.

I have now entered about 350 books over the last 2 years, and these problems have been consistent the entire time – – even with the most recent updates.

Finally, I’ve never been able to get your system to recognize the ISBN numbers of magazines or journals.

This is the second review that I have written, my first being about 2 years ago, and the issues I have mentioned here I mentioned back then. I have even been in contact with the developer several times, and these issues remain.

Developer Response ,

Sorry that the app is not working out for you. The latest updates fixes some of the bugs you’ve mentioned, so I encourage you to give it a try.
Citationsy will never be able to scan magazines and journals.
